Makeup artist Allie Shehorn survived after an ex stabbed her over 20 times.

The assault came after the special effects artist, 35, filed a restraining order against him. Her ex fled the state following the horrific incident but was arrested in Texas.

Fortunately, Shehorn's surrogate mother Christine White found her in her bedroom, recalling that the scene "wasn’t a pretty sight."

"This is not the kind of thing that should happen to anybody," White told a local news outlet. "You don’t think this is ever going to happen to you."

"The fact that she was able to get through what she did that night and how fast she’s recovering is really amazing,” friend Christopher Wayne shared.
